He has all the right tools...and the skill to use them.
Need a carpenter who has all the right tools and the skill to use them? Look no further than me, Jackson Decker...otherwise known as Big Deck. I'll let you guess how I may have inherited that nickname. Spoiler alert: it's not just because I'm 6'5".
I take care of my female clients in many ways. I've got tools, and I've got rules: three seconds, tops, for hugs. No going on dates. No staying overnight. And absolutely no letting anyone mess with my heart.
I'm yours for the duration of the project. And then, it's over. Most women find it difficult to say goodbye, and sometimes it's hard for me, too—literally. See what I just did there? But that's the way it has to be, and I've always been able to handle it.
Until Madeline Callaway.
I was only looking to get a big bathroom, not a big man, since I've sworn off relationships after being cheated on. But when Jack Decker showed up at my door with his jaw-dropping sex appeal and huge...um, workboots, I found myself wanting his hands on more than just my bathroom fixtures. I wasn't prepared for how he'd make me laugh, blush, swoon...ache.
Will I be able to follow our agreement of insanely hot, no-strings sex, keep my emotions in check and let Jack go once he's done the renovation? Or will I need him to return and repair the hole in my heart?

It was just ok. I really didn’t form ant attachments to the characters.
LOVE THIS BOOK
I knew I was going to like this book from the very first page! Jackson Decker is a building contractor who is very skilled with his hands as well as his other body parts! He’s young, studly, smart, strong, and single, and makes sure he leaves all his female clients very satisfied. He is very content with his life, or so he thinks, until he lands on the doorstep of Madeline Callaway who hired him to renovate her master bathroom and basically turns his life upside down.
Jack is such a work in progress. He’s smart, funny, charming, endearing, but oh so troubled on the inside. Remy Rose has such a wicked sense of humor and it shines through in every one of their conversations. Madeline is his match in every way and the two really bring out the best in each other. Their banter, including their “scoring system,” is both hilarious and heart warming. Both were burned by past loves, but Jack seems to think the best way to move forward is to build a wall around his heart, but piece-by-piece, Madeline tears it down.
Madeline is the perfect heroine. She’s beautiful, funny, a great friend, a smart businesswoman, independent, thoughtful, and realizes her self worth. I so admired how she gives Jack the space he needs, and how she respects herself enough not to go chasing after him even when her heart was breaking.
Jack has family issues to work out, career decisions to make, and some soul searching to do. He seeks solace and guidance from one of his clients, Ed, an older gentleman who recently lost his wife. Ed is very wise and I enjoyed their conversations very much. Ed, a retired teacher, explains the importance of not wasting time and cherishing the moments you have with those you love, and really serves as a mentor to Jack.
This book has all the feels including lots sexy times! Their chemistry was undeniably explosive and you could feel their attraction to one another on every page. There was also lots of angst in this book, but once Jack came to term with his feelings and was no longer tormented, there was no turning back; he was all in. I loved their inner dialogue and the character development throughout this book. The writing is excellent, and the reader gets pulled into the story and routes for them to have their HEA the entire time.
